Every year on September 15th, teachers and students celebrate National Online Learning Day to exhibit the success of online learners everywhere. As virtual learning continues to push the boundaries of traditional brick-and-mortar education, students and teachers are adapting to this new environment with flying colors. Implementing technology like coding, interactive online environments that provide real-time feedback to students, and individualized curriculums tailored to student progress are just a few of the benefits of virtual education. 


National Online Learning Day began in 2016 with the intention to showcase students and the vast potential of virtual education. Every year, education organizations from all over the country recognize the potential of online learning and its benefits. Since 2016, the virtual education space in K-12 and higher education has boomed as more students began learning from home and young working professionals returned to school. 

National Online Learning Day places emphasis on the importance of technology in education and how innovation drives new opportunities. The evolution of education technology can individualize learning, teach valuable organization skills, and provide management solutions for administrators and faculty. Teachers and students can teach and learn at their own pace and comprehend better through customized lessons. Many online education tools offer interactive instruction for workshops that may not be available in traditional classrooms. Courses like coding, web design, and graphic design are just a few of the abundant options available to virtual students where the application of concepts can be directly applied during instruction.
